Mr Joe Galasso, This man was a God send for my daughterscase, he is Absolutely Awesome, he new exactly what our case involved new the steps and he was very honest in telling us what the possibilities were if it didn't go the way we wanted. So we new the win ant lose of the case no surprises. But the honesty what was the most Important to us, he was very honest and upfront, and he gave us time to pay just before court was due. I had spoken to other lawyers but the moment I said I needed to pay 3 payments of 500, they didn't want to help me , but Joe offered, very kind and Generous. He made us feel confident, comfortable, So highly appreciated and WE RECOMMEND JOE , Thank you Joe so much, and we will be in contact very soon for Expunging, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOLKS , HONEST AND UPFRONT AND HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU , THANK YOU JOE GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS

Very Compassionate
Mr. Galasso was very compassionate from the very moment that I spoke to him on the phone. I explained to him how I was having anxiety with court (trying to get community service hours extended) and how my current public defender is very rude and lacks patience. Mr. Galasso put my mind at ease, and can work with your budget...if my current public defender continues to have a sour attitude towards me, I'm going to hire Mr. Galasso because he seems to be more professional, patient, and caring. He looks at his clients as individuals and cares about their situations. I definitely recommend Mr. Galasso!
